Session PC05: Numeracy through Play

A Twilight Session designed for all practitioners working in Early Learning and Childcare in East Lothian as part of a series of twilight sessions to build our ambition to be reflective practitioners dedicated to delivering the highest quality early learning experiences. The sessions provide an ideal opportunity to develop a partnership network and to share practice.

Session overview:

Looking inwards: To reflect on ways children learn numeracy skills in the nursery.

Looking outwards:

  • To look at the numeracy skills that we want our children to be leaving nursery with – based on the East Lothian Numeracy Signposts.
  • To consider how we can make our settings rich in numeracy
  • To break down the signposts and consider number in routines, practitioner skill, our environment, outdoors, stories games and songs.

Looking forwards: To decide ways to develop numeracy in our own nursery.
